Your four legged family members need a doctor too.

Add a subheading copy 13Let’s be honest our pets are actually just furry four-legged family members, and when they hurt we hurt.  So when we make a move one of the many things we need to do is find those furry four-legged family members their own doctor to care for them.  Whether you’ve just moved or you’re looking for a local vet this week’s local business of the week located in Forest Grove, Oregon – Pacific Avenue Veterinary Clinic.

Dr, Sid and his crew have been helping small pets and their parents since 1998.  They provide the following services to their community:

Preventative Maintenance – just like your human family members your four legged family members need those routine check ups too.

  • Surgery – let’s be honest every now and then something happens and your pet will need surgery.  With an experienced surgical team you can be certain that your furry family member will be well cared for from the start of surgery to their recovery.
  • Diagnostics – they have state of the art diagnostic equipment so should you find that Fido needs an x-ray, ultrasound, blood work or other diagnostic treatment Pacific Ave. Vet Clinic can help.
  • Pet Boarding – headed out for a vacation?  They have two separate areas to keep healthy pets away from sick ones.  Both cats and dogs will find themselves feeling comfy thanks to large windowed cages that allow cats to do some bird watching, while Fido enjoys a walk two to three times a day.  They also know that just like humans pets do better away from home with the things that they love so you are welcome to bring their favorite blanket or toy.
  • Dentistry – Yes pets need to have dental work done too
  • Cat Grooming –  I bow down to them on this one because as you know, cats can be real jerks.  Probably why they offer sedated cat grooms which can include a lion cut, brush out, nail trim, sanitary shave in addition to ear and eye cleaning.  They do not offer cat bathing and I don’t blame them.  Cats plus water is a bad idea.

They also have an online store making it easy and convenient for you to get your pet supplies. 

Does Fido Need Some Help?

I know that when my doggo Tug was alive, and I lived in another small town, having the vet close was nice, especially when they provide services like the ones that the North Plains Vet clinic offers.

How to Choose the Right Real Estate Agent.

How to Find the Perfect Real Estate Agent | MyKCM

Let’s be honest the internet is full of information regarding real estate and it can be confusing even in the best of times.

If you’re thinking of buying or selling this year, it is important that you have an agent who can help you:

  • Make sense of this rapidly evolving housing market
  • Navigate everything from virtual showings to new online marketing strategies
  • Price your home correctly at the beginning of the selling process
  • Determine what to offer on your dream home without paying too much or offending the seller

Dave Ramsey, a financial guru, advises:

“When getting help with money, whether it’s insurance, real estate or investments, you should always look for someone with the heart of a teacher, not the heart of a salesman.”

Hiring an agent who has a finger on the pulse of the current market will make your buying or selling experience so much easier.

So, how do you go about identify who truly understands what’s happening right now? How are you going to find the person  who will take the time to simply and effectively explain what today’s market conditions mean to you and your family?

Check out the agent on social media. What are they posting on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and more? Are they using their social media platforms to provide relevant, helpful information, on the real estate market and communities they serve or are they just posting memes and recipes? The best agents are committed to educating the consumer so they can feel confident when buying or selling a home.

Bottom Line

What agents are posting online will help you determine who meets the criteria Dave Ramsey suggested you look for: someone with the heart of a teacher. Let’s connect today.  My goal is to guide my clients through the real estate process to help them find the home and community that works best for them.  #humansoverhouses

When you need advice seek out an expert

Untitled design copy 7


Everyday the news is full of information on the coronavirus which has a lot of people on edge regarding both their health and financial situations.  During times like these you want exact information about anything that is happening in the world you live in, including the correct protocol for grocery shopping.  Information brings knowledge, and that can give you a sense of relief and comfort.

If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home today, the same need for information is very real. Buying or selling a home is such a big step in your life, that your desire for clear information is even greater during this process. Given the current level of overall anxiety people might have right now, you want the advice you seek to be truly perfect. Unfortunately no one can give you “perfect” advice. Experts however can give you the best possible advice for your specific situation.

Let’s say you need an attorney, so you seek out an expert who specializes in the type of law required for your case.  You go to their office, yet they won’t immediately tell you how the case is going to end or how the judge or jury will rule. If they could, that would be perfect advice. What a good attorney can do, however, is discuss with you the most effective strategies you can take. They may recommend one or two approaches that they believe will be best for your specific case, and allow you to decide  how to proceed based off of that advice.

Once you decide, they can help you put a plan together based on the facts at hand. They’ll help you achieve the best possible resolution and make modifications in the strategy are necessary to help guarantee that outcome. That’s an example of the best advice possible.

The role of a real estate professional is just like the role of a lawyer. An agent/broker can’t give you perfect advice because it’s impossible to know exactly what’s going to happen throughout the transaction – especially in this market.

An agent/broker can, however, give you the best advice possible based on the information and situation at hand, guiding you through the process to help you make the necessary adjustments and best decisions along the way. An agent/broker will get you the best offer available. That’s exactly what you want and deserve.

Bottom Line

If you’re thinking of buying or selling, contact a local real estate professional to make sure you get the best advice possible.
